How has POWER BUILD’sjourney been so far?
The very foundation of POWER BUILD was laid in 1972 in technical collaboration with a German firm. Later on, we associated with a Japanese firm to launch compact geared motor series and with UKbased David Brown to manufacture advanced Gearboxes and Geared Motors. Since this wasn’t quite adequate, we acquired the Thailand based Geared Motor business of David Brown in 2010, which fetched us a vast international footprint and enhanced our design & development
capability. Today, we take immense pride in our brand RADICON POWER BUILD that brings to our customers the advantages of latest product design along with the best manufacturing technology and customer support services.

Speaking of geographical presence, we have worldwide presence with 25+ offices across the globe to offer technical support and products to customers as and when essential. In addition, we have 40+ sales & service centres and a network of 80+ dealers, distributors & stockists across India. We have stocking and distribution centers in Europe, UK, USA and Thailand. Moreover, our wide international market presence is being continuously augmented with newer applications of domestic, top notch products.
